Graf presenting new flat top system for cards at ITMA
Nov '15
Switzerland based Graf; a manufacturer of clothings for flat cards and roller cards is presenting a new product, the Easytop at ITMA in Milan.

“Flexible clothings are one of the key components in a carding machine and to ensure an evenly high quality of the carding-sliver, they have to be replaced regularly,” a Graf press release stated.

According to Graf, when the personnel is doing the replacement, the carding machine has to be stopped and to keep these down-times as short as possible, Graf now offers a new flat top system.

The Easytop can reduce stoppages by 70 per cent and is used primarily used for magnetic flat top clothings.

The flat tops, equipped with a steel-backside are attached securely and precisely with a magnetic fixation and resist even high carding forces and also guarantee a high reliability of operation.

Graf added that the replacing of the flat tops is very simple and can be removed and reattached manually, with no requirement for additional tools.

After placing the EasyTop on the flat bar, the strong magnets automatically assure the correct positioning.

“The flat top bars are mounted on the carding machine, which can continue the production immediately after adjustment,” it informed.

“The reduced stoppage increases the cost-effectiveness, while the flat tops do not have to be equalised in a flat workshop, which reduces the costs even further,” the company explained.

The EasyTop system can be used together with flat bars with magnetic attachment from all manufacturers and tops are available for working widths of 40”, 51” and 60”. (AR)
